Krisnamurti Centre

"The teachings are important in themselves and interpreters and commentators only distort them. It is advisable to go directly to the source, the teachings themselves, and not through any authority."

J. Krishnamurti

The Teachings of J. Krishnamurti

Who was Krishnamurti?

Krishnamurti is regarded throughout the world as one of the greatest thinkers and religious teachers of all time. He did not expound any philosophy or religion, but rather talked of the things that concern all of us in our everyday life the problems of living in modern society with its violence and corruption; of the individual's search for security and happiness; and the need for mankind to free itself from inner burdens of fear, anger, hurt, sorrow, and so on. He unravelled with great precision the subtle workings of the human mind and pointed to the need for bringing to our daily life a deeply meditative and religious quality.

For almost sixty years until his death on 17 February 1986, Krishnamurti travelled all over the world talking to people about the need for a radical change in mankind.
